Pope to Create Cardinals at Christ the King Consistory - Canonization Reception Photos

Pope Benedict XVI Names 24 New Cardinals

At the close of today's General audience, Pope Benedict XVI announced that he has summoned a consistory for the Vigil of the Solemnity of Christ the King, November 20th when a number of prelates will be created (this is the term used) Cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church (those under 80 years of age will be electors of a future Pope). They are:

Angelo Amato, prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints;

Antonio Naguib, patriarch of Alexandria of the Copts,

Robert Sarah, president of the Pontifical Council Cor Unum,

Francesco Monterisi, archpriest of St Paul's Outside the Walls,

Fortunato Baldelli, major penitentiary of the Roman church,

Raymond Burke, prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura,

Kurt Koch, president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity

Paolo Sardi, pro-Patron of the Order of Malta,

Mauro Piacenza, prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy

Velasio DePaolis CS, prefect for the Economic Affairs of the Holy See (& papal delegate to the Legionaries of Christ)

Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council for Culture (who is scheduled to speak at the CCCB Plenary Assembly in Cornwall next week)

Medardo Joseph Mazombwe, archbishop-emeritus of Lusaka (Zambia)

Raul Eduardo Vela Chiliboga, archbishop-emeritus of Quito (Ecuador)

Laurent Monsengwo Pasinya, archbishop of Kinshasa

Paolo Romeo, archbishop of Palermo (and former Apostolic Nuncio to Canada)

Donald Wuerl, archbishop of Washington

Raymundo Damasceno Assis, archbishop of Aparecida

Kazmierz Nycz, archbishop of Warsaw

Malcolm Ranjith, archbishop of Colombo

Reinhard Marx, archbishop of Munich and Freising

...and those who have served the Church in an exemplary way and merit the cardinalatial dignity (being over 80 years of age, they will not be Cardinal-electors in a future conclave):

Archbishop Jose Manuel Estepa Llaurens, Military Ordinary-emeritus of Spain

Bishop Elio Sgreccia, president-emeritus of the Pontifical Academy for Life

Msgr Walter Brandmuller, president-emeritus of the Pontifical Commission for Historical Sciences

Msgr Domenico Bartolucci, director-emeritus of the Sistine Choir

Congratulations, Your Eminences!
